Johnny encounters warm-hearted humanity
While seeking out which family he belongs to, he learns the stories of the families who have lost the ones they loved. They touch him, and he is able to help in a small way, too.
There are just a couple of lines that come off stilted in their delivery, but otherwise the delivery is well done. The acting is good. Both serious and humorous situations are handed with a light touch.
This rates probably about a 3.5, but the overall depth of situation with the families Johnnie meets was so valuable and positive to experience, I am rounding the rating up to 4.

Excellent acting, script was a bit contrived, but overall I would give it a three star rating.
The direction, while adequate, did not compel any lasting emotion.
